After Stevenson's virtual reading session, Amy received an email from his teacher sharing that she was concerned after Stevenson said "What the!?" during a session. His teacher said he wasn't in trouble because technically he didn't say a bad word, but she was concerned that he could say a bad word if he continues using the phrase. Amy read the email and wasn't sure what to think because she knew for a fact that Stevenson learned the phrase from her. Amy confessed that she says it around the house all the time, but never ever follows it up with a bad word.
Bobby Bones let Amy off the hook because it's not a bad phrase without a bad word added into it.
